Technopolis Group is the pre-eminent provider of policy advice and support to decision making – grounded in evidence and experience – to organizations and people with a mission to address environmental and societal challenges and achieve economic growth by means of science, technology, innovation and education.
Technopolis Group has offices all over Europe (including UK, Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Austria, France, Sweden, Estonia) and Latin America.
To improve collaboration and information sharing in the multi-location working environment, Technopolis Group decided to adopt Office 365 and move e-mail accounts and calendars of all employees to cloud based service. They trusted Uptime to manage this large-scale IT project.
We took responsibility for full management of the project. We analysed the Group´s IT environment to plan a successful cloud solution implementation, consulted on acquiring the necessary license types with best fit for Technopolis Group’s business needs, prepared the infrastructure, set up Active Directory Services and migrated users data to the cloud.
Now when the solution is fully deployed, we have created a platform which enables Technopolis Group to transform its business processes and improve the information gathering.
"Uptime offered proficient consulting and support throughout this process and were always there for rapid response and action. I especially appreciate their patient investigation and optimisation of the complex licensing process."
